The Honest Company, Inc. Key Developments

Erlewine, Given & Carlin LLP Announces New Lawsuit Against the Honest Company, Inc

Erlewine, Given & Carlin LLP announced that it has filed a new lawsuit against The Honest Company, Inc., brought by plaintiffs Candace Hiddlestone and Julie Hedges on behalf of a nationwide class. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Los Angeles, contends that the Honest Company misleadingly labeled and marketed certain products as natural, when in fact those products contain synthetic, non-natural ingredients. The firm is prosecuting a similar case against Honest on behalf of several other plaintiffs. Attorney Nicholas Carlin, the current lawsuit is on behalf of both on-line and brick and mortar purchasers, and also adds additional product lines. The previous lawsuit did not cover online purchasers. The products listed in the current lawsuit were marketed as natural, inducing consumers to pay a premium for the products on the false premises they were natural, when in fact they not only contain non-natural ingredients, but in some cases contain chemicals rated as either highly or moderately hazardous by the Environmental Working Group.
